An afternoon of painting changed this scene quite a bit. It would be easy to stop now because I am satisfied with the overall mood, color transitions and relationships that make this foundation. But, as with a good story, it is missing the "hook" that will catch the viewer's interest and hold it long enough for further exploration of the image. To help me decide what to do next, I will look at this image in grayscale on my computer. It needs some push and pull, some conflict. I have to think...this is the hard part.
